Casey Anthony's Lawyer

SHE'S NOT SAFE IN FLORIDA

8/3/2011 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

080311_jose_baez_videoCasey Anthony's lawyer says Anthony could be in danger if she's required to return to Florida this week to meet with a probation officer -- telling Matt Lauer, "The last thing we wanna do is put Casey in harm's way."

Attorney Jose Baez appeared on "Today" this morning ... and explained, "We have an issue of safety." He was not specific about the potential threat.

Earlier this week, Judge Stan Strickland ordered Anthony back to Orlando to begin probation for a 2010 check fraud conviction. Baez believes the judge is exceeding his authority by requiring Anthony to return to Florida because the Department of Corrections already certified that she completed her probation.

But around the same time Baez appeared on "Today" -- Judge Strickland officially recused himself from the case ... but did not give a reason for his decision to step down. 

No word on who will replace Strickland --or if that person will enforce his order requiring Casey to return to Florida.

I'd like to know who was protecting Caylee when she needed help? Who protected Caylee when her Cassey chloroformed her and put duck tape over her nose and mouth. This murderer is being treated like some pop star celebrity, when she's nothing but a pathological liar.

The only thing BaeZ is worried about is that his girlfriend is going to be locked up again

As long as whites exists, she isn't safe anywhere. They actually think that killing her, her parents, the judge, lawyers and juors makes them better than Casey. And they just can't drop anything. SHE'S NOT GUILTY PEOPLE...THERE WAS NEVER ONE IOTA OF PROOF THAT SHE DID ANYTHING UNTOWARD HER DAUGHTER.....LET IT GO....JUST LET IT GO!!!!!!
